Blogtrottr provides a variety of schedules for you to choose from:
If your feeds support PubSubHubub, then you can expect to get an update within a couple minutes of a new item being posted. Typically email leaves our system with 10 seconds of us being notified - although the internet being what it is, the email may take a bit longer to find its way across the world and into your inbox.
PubSubHubbub is a protocol that allows interested parties to be notified almost immediately when new content is added to a feed, rather than having to wait for a periodic check. It's quickly gaining traction, and is already being used by Blogger, FeedBurner, FriendFeed, LiveJournal, WordPress and more, with plugins available for most other popular blogging software, so there's a good chance that some of your favourite feeds already support it.
Not to worry, we'll autodetect any available feeds from a website URL, and present you with a list you can choose from.
Simply go into your Account Settings page, edit the Email address field, and click the Update button at the bottom of the page.
We'll send a confirmation email to the new address - just follow the link within, and the change is complete.
Yes. Add this Blogtrottr bookmarklet to your favourites (by right clicking and selecting 'Add to favourites' or dragging it to your favourites toolbar), and when you're on a page that you want to follow with Blogtrottr, just click the bookmarklet.
A bookmarklet is a tiny program contained in a browser bookmark which can be saved and used the same way you use normal bookmarks.
If the feed supports
basic HTTP authentication, then yes - you can embed a username and password into a URL like this:
This means of course that we'll have these credentials stored in plain text, and while we won't reveal them to anyone it'd be a sensible precaution to use a unique password, and not one that you use on other sites or services.

Unfortunately some services place strict limits on how frequently we can poll
them for updates.
Currently, these domains are restricted to Daily Digests:
Feeds on the following domains will be polled no more frequently than:
2 hours (for free plans), or 1 hour (for paid plans):
<form method='post' action='https://blogtrottr.com'> Your email: <input type='text' name='btr_email' /><br /> <input type='hidden' name='btr_url' value='http://yourfeed' /> <input type='hidden' name='schedule_type' value='0' /> <input type='submit' value='Follow this feed via email' /> </form>
Autoblogging is the practice of automatically posting content (usually copied without permission from other sites) to blogs or websites. Here are a selection of well written articles explaining why this is a bad thing.
Due to numerous complaints from content owners about their work being republished, any user accounts detected using Blogtrottr for this purpose will be automatically suspended.
There are many services and software packages out there dedicated to autoblogging, if you feel you must do this, please go and use one of them instead.
